I REALLY like what you did with making your case!! Nice Job!

Explain what you did with that power supply over on the left. Is that an AC -> DC PS? What kind of power cord?


Hehe, thanks guys. It's nothing special, just a off the shelf external modem enclosure bought from Rapid Electronics. The PSU is just a spare AC>DC 5v switch mode I had lying around from another project. All I had to do is remove it's plastic case and it nicely (if only just) fits inside. I had to mount the SD card slot more forward than the original design so it would stick out the front.

The screw holes on the right are perfectly match the holes on the pcb so all that was needed was to cut the pillars down and add some mounting points in the middle of the case for the other pcb screws. Power is handled by a regular "figure-8" type cable and while I can't remember for sure but I think the PSU is rated for 240v and 110v operation.

chain - that also looks nice. you use a touchpad on the keyboard instead of a mouse?

how i see you all have your own produced cases, that`s interesting.

That`s such a nice set up. But how do you live without a mouse?
My mouse is put on a wheel every night to charge the built-in sillysod batteries, so reducing my carbon thumb-print :lol:

that`s cool turbonut2000, but i use rats for this :mrgreen: then there is even enough power to connect other components like "time machines" or "hoverboards"!!! :lol:

Sadly, My time machine was broken by rats (Why stopped using them) and it`s stuck on "forward-Ratio 1:1"
